Ida Lifshitz nee Paley Death Certificate

It’s been some time since I have checked in and shared any family history, documents or stories. It came to my attention that I had not shared the death certificate for Ida Lifshitz, which I will do in this post.

Ida Paley was the wife of David Lifshitz. I have little to no information about David. She was the mother of my great grandfather Benjamin Lipshitz (he spelled it with the p ) and his six siblings, Fanny, Molly, Solomon (Simon), Rachel, Isaac (Ike), and Samuel all spelling it with the (f) With the exception of their father David, they all immigrated to the U.S. From census records for Ida, she immigrated some time around 1893, as a widow. She remained an alien until her passing on June 23, 1921.

On this record her birth date is given as June 16, 1838 – Russia. We also learned her fathers name and her mothers first name. I love on the back side of the document the signature of her son Simon which is off to the side.
